The Cincinnati Bengals players, like much of the rest of the world, watched Floyd Mayweather takedown Conor McGregor with a TKO in the 10th round of Saturday night’s fight.
The Bengals players have a game to play today so hopefully they still got a good night’s rest after the fight, which ended just before 1:00 a.m. ET. Here are the reactions to the fight from many Bengals players including AJ McCarron, Tyler Eifert, Giovani Bernard and more guys on the team.
Here’s a look at the Bengals watching the fight together:
Cedric Ogbuehi just wanted to know when the fight was going to start after it was delayed by about an hour due to PPV issues...

The spoiler shared by John Ross wasn’t quite right.
Giovani Bernard knows how to spot the advertisements (though they were pretty obvious)...
